    I'm sure she isn't paid for her time with ignorant posters but I wasn't being ignorant, she commented on my punctuation I corrected it and if she was rude enough to comment on it with regards to understanding it properly, the fact I corrected it should mean she should be equally as respectful and take the time to re-read it now I've corrected it!

    Also I've already stated in my very 1st post we did pay a bond aka deposit,

    And again on 2 more separate occasions

    The deposit is with the landlord, the deposit/bond amount was £360, basically we paid 4 weeks rent + the amount of 4 weeks rent as a deposit so we paid £720 the day we moved in

    Simple solution. On the 7th February, (assuming you serve notice before 25th Jan), do not pay the full rent up to 6th March; just pay what is due for the period 7th Feb - 22nd Feb inclusive, 16 days' worth.

    No sir,

    I did say

    Originally posted by Labtec81 View Post

    Which means we paid 4 weeks in advance for rent, which is why I said when we move out on the 15th of February 2011 we will have paid the rent until the 7th of March 2011 because we've always been 4 weeks in front and never in arrears with the rent.

    Assuming MTG is correct, and your notice (served before 25th Jan 2011) must expire on Monday 22nd Feb 2011, and assuming that the four weeks rent in advance you paid when you moved in on 29th June 2009 was for the first four weeks' rent for the property - i.e. 29th June-26th July (and you paid the second lot of rent on 27th July 2009) - then you will be liable for further rent for the period 7th Feb - 22nd Feb 2011 inclusive.
    Thank you,

    ...10th January 2011
    7th February 2011 is the next rent due date.

    3 weeks rent adds upto £250 and the bond amount we paid was £360.

    Can anyone else clarify that please or do we actually lose the months rent we paid in advance and won't be entitled to anything back but the bond?

    If it wasn't, then you may withhold payment of the rent for the lasts 4 weeks of your tenancy. Otherwise the landlord will have to refund it to you as it is a debt.

    I replied to your last post mind the gap,

    Did you manage to read it okay after I edited the post of mine that you commented on re: the punctuation.

    Okay I'll separate it so it's more understandable.

    Edited the post before this one, so hopefully it's now more readable, I do apologise I type as I think and that's fast (too fast sometimes) lol.

    Also I've just been thinking we are needing to move on the 15th of February right but when we moved in we paid a months (well 4 weeks rent in advance) and with the rent next being due on the 7th of February 2011 it wouldn't be due again until the 7th of March 2011 so the rent would be fully paid up wouldn't it? As after the 15th of February we would be living elsewhere but will have already paid the rent from February till March, so the fact we paid the rent 4 weeks in advance when we first moved in and the fact we'd be paying the rent again on the 7th of February before we moved out would mean we wouldn't lose the bond right? And the rent would be fully paid up till the date everyone's mentioned, that date being the 7th of March 2011 when users of the forum say is the official date we could move out, but the landlord shouldn't have a problem with us leaving early right if we pay the rent in February which would take us through to March anyway, on top of that we'd paid 4 weeks in advance when we moved in.

    Thanks for all the replies so far.

    Has L either protected it or undertaken the insurance alternative?

    I agree. OP, if it is the case that your original fixed term expired on 28th Dec, then notice served by you before Monday 25 January would expire on Monday 22nd February.

    By 'Where is the deposit' I mean, is it protected in a scheme, or not?
